All of these photos (which I have not seen any of them before - thanks!) show the Berghof - the terrace on top of the garage, and the patio just behind that, at the side of the old Haus Wachenfeld winter garden sun room.

What is the source of the first three? I would really like to get a good enlargement of the second one.

Hi Geoff
I neglected to save the source of the pics [oopps] but it was Tumblr.
I'll see if I can find it again.
However you can find the image you want** plus lots of other good stuff here.
The image was taken by Rochus Misch according to this
http://peopleus.blogspot.com/2015/01/fb ... andes.html
Some of the captions are a bit inaccurate.
**EDIT
I've just realised that it's not exactly the same image at all -same location different people. -Sorry about that.
I'll keep searching.

Cheers

There are a couple of photos on ebay right now, and I'm not sure of what I'm looking at. Here is one, is this correct? Interior of the Berghof?

thank you max for sharing the images earlier. every once in a while, somebody somewhere shares something that has not been seen - which is great...
not sure about the ebay link pic shared by Duane- doesnt seem like the berghof - the architecture vocabulary too doesnt seem period, for that time....

Thanks all, I didn't think that was the Berghof, just wasn't sure. There are several more pics on right now on ebay mentioning same thing in title, 'Hitler's Berghof' photos.

Max, I'm so glad you found the source of that! I have seen that photo several times on ebay, and knew it wasn't the Berghof, but didn't know where it was.
There are currently several seemingly bogus items on ebay, purporting to be from, or show, the Obersalzberg. Many of these are coming out of Italy. Well, really, there are ALWAYS bogus items on ebay - As with anything else, it's Buyer Beware.

In my files I found more images of the chairs on the terrace of the Berghof (and Haus Wachenfeld earlier), some of which may add something to this discussion. Many of these show the various little girls who may (or may not) be Bernile Neinau at different times.
I wish I could give the sources of all of these - some are postcards in my collection, others from Hoffmann's photo books, some from the Hoffmann photo collection in the US National Archives, others I just saved off the internet.

Here are some with "Bernile" (the bottom one - a common Hoffmann postcard view - was certainly Bernile Nienau).
